Sony Classical is delighted to announce an unprecedented reissue of the recordings made by Pierre Boulez for CBS/American Columbia. They are all being issued together for the first time in a single Sony Classical box set of 67 CDs. Every recording comes from the best source; several have been newly remastered from the original analogue tapes, such as Bergs Altenberg Lieder, Op. 4 (1967), Seven Early Songs (1972) and Carter’s A Mirror On Which To Dwell.
One of the towering figures of modern music, Boulez began his conducting career in 1958 in Baden-Baden, Germany. His remarkable achievements in Europe brought him to the attention of George Szell, who invited him to make his US debut in 1965 with the Cleveland Orchestra. Boulez went on to serve in Cleveland as principal guest conductor and musical advisor from 1967 until 1972, and has maintained close ties to that elite ensemble ever since. In 1971, he became chief conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra in London, and the same year he succeeded Leonard Bernstein as music director of the New York Philharmonic, holding that illustrious position until 1977.
